Jim & Rickey On Dave

Rice and Henderson doing the Top Ten on Letterman right now. They gave Jim some good lines--and he delivered them much more smoothly than Rickey did his.

Dave told a story about Rice giving him a ticket to the '82 All-Star Game in San Diego back when he was a nobody. The ticket ended up being in the players' wives section, and when Dave ripped on Freddie Patek's size, the woman in front of him turned around and said, "that's my husband." When Jim came out for the Top Ten, Dave called over to him and asked if he remembered him from that day-Jim said no but added, "but I remember Freddie Patek!" [video of all this here, thanks Ian]

I would've loved to have been in the green room with Rice, Rickey, and Jimmie Walker, who is also on the show tonight.

And the Mets have supposedly signed Alex Cora. Mets fans, you will love Alex Cora. Alex Cora, we will miss you.

Thanks for the link Jere. That was pretty funny stuff.
It was actually the 1978 All-Star Game in SD. Great stuff though!
